Retire to Portugal?

Wednesday, 28. January 2015

In several countries, including Algarve, Portugal; Pau, France; Abruzzo, Italy; and Medellin, Colombia, your U.S. dollars will stretch farther than in the U.S. thanks to current exchange rates. And in Cuenca, Ecuador, and Pedasi, Panama, the U.S. dollar is their currency, so there’s no exchange-rate risk. Here are your 10 best options in 2015:

1. Algarve, Portugal. Portugal's Algarve is home to more than 100,000 resident foreign retirees. This old world region on the Atlantic Ocean is the best place in the world to retire that nobody's talking about. Portugal's southernmost province offers the best of Europe, including medieval towns, fishing villages, open-air markets and local wine, plus some of Europe's best sandy beaches.

This is a land of cobblestoned streets and whitewashed houses with lace-patterned chimneys, surrounded everywhere by fig, olive, almond and carob trees. Thinking more practically, the Algarve also offers great weather, with 3,300 hours of sunshine per year, meaning more sunny days than almost anywhere else in Europe.

The Algarve has a longstanding reputation as a

The proposal will also aim to reduce the amount of camper vans parking in dangerous and unsafe areas, such as near cliff tops or dunes.


The announcement comes after it was revealed that the number of campervans visiting the Algarve has more than doubled in the space of two years, up to 29,000 last year from a figure of 13,000 in 2012.

The best of Portugal

Saturday, 10. January 2015

The greatest champion of Portuguese food is its fish, since its location and the Atlantic waters make it the best fish in the world. However, there are countless reasons why Portugal is a gastronomic destination of choice.

The fish and the seafood, which are best enjoyed by the seaside under the pleasant Portuguese sun, are joined by a huge variety of good quality table wines, enhanced by a Mediterranean climate that also offers ideal conditions for olive oil. That’s why Port Wine has, for centuries, been a great ambassador for Portugal, and nowadays it is joined by other genuine Portuguese products like the pastel de nata (custard tart) and.....

“Thousands” could face fines over short term holiday rentals

Friday, 19. December 2014

Thousands of taxpayers who let out properties for holiday rentals could face hefty fines for failure to register this activity with their local tax offices.

Due to a recent announcement from the Tax Office (Finanças), the tax reporting on short term holiday rentals has changed dramatically with the most recent amendments published on 29 August, and which were enacted on 26 November 2014, foreseeing the issuing of severe fines for those who are non-compliant with the stipulations of the new legislation.
According to fiscal and expatriate services company Eurofinesco, it is now compulsory that all activity registrations are in place by 31 December 2014.

Digging for answers in Luz and Euro 2004 rioting revisited

When to book your 2015 Summer Holiday

Sunday, 30. November 2014
If you have children then holidays must be taken during the school holidays.
This creates a great demand for all the popular family holiday resorts.
So great can be the demand that the availability of holiday villas and apartments becomes less and less as the Summer Holidays approach.
Although this all must seem common sense, it is surprising just how many people leave the booking of their Summer Holidays for whatever reason, to the last minute.

Perhaps among these reasons is the popularity of last minute deals and indecision of where to go.
Although it is possible to get some last minute holiday deals, airlines generally offer lower prices for advance bookings and higher prices for last minute bookings and so the gain is offset.
Another possible reason for delaying booking is the fear that illness or other unpredictable events may cause cancellation and loss of money.

Of course it is possible to take out insurance against such events happening, but this can be both expensive and unnecessary.

Most owners of holiday villas and apartments require a small deposit to secure the holiday booking.This deposit is fully refundable in the event of cancellation provided that enough notice is given to enable the booking dates to be offered to others enquiring, This notice period of cancellation is usually around 6-8 weeks.

So what is the best time to book your summer holiday? Why not as early as now or at the very latest January 2015 for ensuring that you have the best choice , beating the rush ,avoiding frustration and disappointment?

Portugal’s secret coastline

Monday, 24. November 2014

Portugal, like every popular coastal tourist destination, finds its beaches packed with visitors from May to September. While the vast expanses of sand at beaches like Praia da Rocha have plenty of room for everyone, certain cove beaches, such as Praia Dona Ana at Lagos, can feel rather too crowded during the peak of the summer. During those times, many locals slip quietly away and head instead for some of Portugal’s most beautiful – and most tucked away – beaches.

As the winter sets in across the UK, Portugal has been enjoying an unusually warm October and November, prompting many to book a last minute winter break in the sunshine and giving them the opportunity to discover some of the incredible beaches that areas such as the Algarve have to offer.
